Post-concussion syndrome is a combination of headache, dizziness, and mental disturbance following a head injury. It is usually attributed to “Traumatic Brain Injury” or “TBI,” which are general terms for head injuries affecting the brain.
Dizziness and nausea are typical early symptoms and they usually resolve over a span of six weeks. However, cognitive symptoms and headaches may persist longer and are sometimes permanent.
Evaluation of the extent of post-concussion syndrome frequently requires expert analysis by trained neuropsychiatrists, neuropsychologists, or other qualified health care professionals.
Proof of causation and proof of the full extent of impact on daily living of post concussion syndrome requires knowledge of or experience with the injury.
